The Department of Data Science collaborates with disease programs, cooperative groups, and investigators across the globe. For over thirty years, we have partnered with clinicians and researchers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and beyond to solve quantitative challenges in cancer research. Our goal is to generate the knowledge and tools to drive progress in cancer research.
Our faculty and staff provide quantitative expertise in areas ranging from clinical trials to basic biology. We also provide statistical leadership for Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center’s Biostatistics Core, ECOG-ACRIN and the International Breast Cancer Study Group.
